Family business contribution to the sustainable development in the rural US Midwest: the case of new technology adoption

  • PDF

Economic and social sustainability represent a major problem in the rural Midwest US. In recent decades, local economies lost numerous jobs and many businesses. The quality of life has eroded. The paper analyses the sustainability of the rural economy and identifies a strategy for reversing the downward economic and social spiral. The strategy, suggested by the analysis of responses to a survey administrated to over 900 businesses in rural Midwest, is to make a wireless infrastructure the key element of any plans for future development.

AMLE: SPECIAL ISSUE--SUSTAINABILITY - MANAGEMENT EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABILITY: A WEB-BASED CONTENT ANALYSIS [Volume 9, Number 3 September 2010]

  • PDF

A web-based content analysis of the management education for sustainability related curricula of 642 business schools from the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) and Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation system revealed drastic variations in curriculum design between European and American business schools. European schools favored an elective orientated approach and placed more emphasis on the graduate level, whereas American business schools placed more sustainability related courses at the undergraduate level mandating them as compulsory. Additionally, differences were found between global regions inducing Asia and Oceania, and between national developmental stage and university ranking with regards to overall level of sustainability related curriculum offered, specific sustainability content, and teaching methods. As well, differences were noted as to the distribution across undergraduate and graduate levels and compulsory and elective offerings. Our findings suggest diverse differences in sustainability related curriculum design from business schools of different backgrounds. If curriculum design is a reflection of local circumstances, we are cautious about accreditation-led imposition of standards on business schools, since it is only at the local level where the best ideas regarding sustainability education as tailored to surrounding situations can originate.

The Stakeholder Approach: A Sustainability Perspective

  • PDF

Abstract   This article considers the stakeholder approach (SHA) to organisational management through the lens of what it means for humans to live sustainably on the Earth (that is, for there to be a sustainable world). In particular, the article considers if the SHA, as it is presented in mainstream academic and management literature, is supportive of corporate practices that advance the achievement of a sustainable world. The analysis shows the SHA to have significant failings in this regard when viewed against key sustainable world criteria, with issues of concern evident from the normative core of the SHA through to is practical application in the management setting.

This article discusses the emerging research concerned with sustainable development and entrepreneurship, which is the focus of this special issue of the Journal of Business Venturing. Entrepreneurship has been recognized as a major conduit for sustainable products and processes, and new ventures are being held up as a panacea for many social and environmental concerns. However, there remains considerable uncertainty regarding the nature of entrepreneurship's role and how it may unfold. We begin with an overview of sustainable development and the role of entrepreneurship and outline recent contributions exploring this role. We then summarize the papers presented in this special...
